When we talk about fighting cellulite, all means are allowed - he althy eating, taking in enough fluids, reducing s alt intake, massages, apparatus procedures and training. But when it comes to exercise, it matters what exactly they are and how they affect our body – some energize us, others mainly work the muscles, and still others are best for the heart. What are the exercises that can help us in the fight against orange peel? If you're dying to know, here are some of them:
Even if it seems too easy to you - walking is the oldest "exercise". You don't need special equipment for it, and at the same time it is one of the most affordable options to increase your physical activity.Studies show that walking can reduce symptoms of anxiety and depression, help you maintain a he althy weight, and lower blood pressure. This type of training can be performed by practically everyone - regardless of gender and age, it is suitable for recovery after operations and in case of extreme excess weight, when any other exercises are not recommended. To reap the benefits of walking, aim for at least 30 minutes a day. But don't forget the golden rule - "The more the merrier". To make it more challenging - vary the pace as well as the slope of the terrain.
Running itself resembles walking, but with a faster rhythm. It releases endorphins - the so-called "hormones of happiness". That's why if you've had a long and stressful day - instead of "resting" in front of the TV or phone screen - put on your old sneakers and head to the nearest park.Just minutes later, you will feel more relaxed, and after the end of the training - reborn! In addition to all the he alth benefits, running will encourage you to drink more water, and with the help of sweat, you will get rid of toxins, speed up your metabolism, and in this way you will be able to reduce the amount of cellulite. For even greater efficiency - apply a warming cream before training, and wear tight leggings. If you don't mind your movements - you can also wear a sauna suit - this was one of the secret weapons of Kim Kardashian, who lost a lot of weight (7 kilograms in 3 weeks) to fit into a Marilyn Monroe dress.
It can be a real fitness challenge for many of us! With it, you will burn a lot of calories, in addition, you will strengthen the cardiovascular system, the large muscles of the lower limbs, bones and joints. The rope does not take up any space, making it an ideal "device" - you can take it anywhere with you! Jumping rope at a good pace can strip you of as much as 308 calories in just 30 minutes!
This world-famous exercise that many fitness professionals swear by probably came from our latitudes (judging by its name)! It is performed as follows - stand with your back to a bench (a chair if you are at home) and place one leg on top (resting with the front of the toes). Try to squat with your knee almost touching the floor. Then take the starting position (stand up straight again). Repeat 12 times with each leg, 3 sets - perform 3 times a week. This exercise will activate the muscles of the front and back of the thighs, as well as the gluteus maximus, thus helping you to reduce cellulite.
Another classic exercise that can be quite a challenge even for ladies who are in good shape. This exercise will activate almost all the muscles in the upper body.Take a "plank" position - the body is in one plane, the arms are outstretched. Slowly lower down until elbows are bent. Push back to starting position. Do 3 sets of 10 reps. Perform 2-3 times a week.
